October Construction Update: E Condos

October 6th, 2015

Welcome to the October construction update for our Yonge and Eglinton project, E Condos! We’re so excited for this development to begin taking shape, and now that our crane is in, progress is coming faster than ever! You might remember about a month ago, we shared this mini construction update where we explained how to install a crane:

In the six weeks since then, we’ve been full steam ahead. Check it out!

Here’s another shot of our crane arm going up. We use a removable hydraulic crane to assemble our permanent one, which will be much stronger & suited for the big jobs we’ve got coming up.

In this photo, you can see the tieback drilling in progress. Tiebacks are rebar rods that are installed to add strength to the building’s foundations.

Above, you can see the elevator shafts being dug as well as raft slab excavation. Raft slabs are another key part of a buildings foundation, strengthened with concrete beams on either side. This is a huge undertaking, but extremely important!

Here, a few weeks later, you can see the raft slab has come along nicely! It has been completely laid, and reinforcing rebar is being placed on top for more strength.
